separation anxiety / remaining alone
Many dogs have trouble being alone and it is a very normal behaviour. But often it does not fit into our lifestyle. Dogs show stress reactions as soon as the dog owner moves out the door. Often these dogs bark, howl or whine for hours. Sometimes even the home furnishings have to believe it.
Being alone can be clean and reliably functioning - even with dogs that already show a fear of separation. It does not always have to be done wrong, separation anxiety can also appear suddenly. The problem can be particularly serious with dogs from abroad that have found a family after a long time of being alone.
Dogs can get frightened by a noise such as a bang or gunshot, but the fact that they hide somewhere (under a bed, in the bathroom) trembling and/or panting clearly indicates a fear of noise. Noise fear can occur suddenly and often appears insidiously and becomes stronger with increasing age. The dog is under extreme stress and there is unfortunately also a fast generalization, so that the dog suddenly reacts to more and more noises. This problem can severely restrict the life of the dog and its owner; holidays such as August 1st or New Year's Day become a strain and in case of thunderstorms the dog cannot leave the house.
This workshop takes place without the dog, as the training is carried out at home in familiar surroundings.
In this workshop we will work exclusively with the help of the clicker or marker signals. For participants who have never worked with the clicker or marker signal before, a setup will be made.Seminar Details
Leash encounters made easy
Encounter workshop for dog / human teams
Many dogs no longer show natural behaviour in encounters with other dogs - especially on the leash. The reasons for this are complex and depend on many factors. Some dogs pull into the leash, try to move forward, bark or whine and others try to escape. These various behaviours push many dog owners to their limits and create tension for the team.
Who can/should participate: All dog-human teams who feel uncomfortable with dog/dog encounters on the road. Also suitable for younger pubescent dogs (from about 7 - 8 months).
This seminar contains a theory block and four practical lessons
youth development - adolescence (theory)
Dogs go through different phases of development during their lives.
Youth development or also called adolescence is a very intense phase in which the brain and hormones sometimes literally throw the dogs off track.
This seminar shows which areas of the brain influence the behaviour of the dog and there are many aha experiences for dog owners on this exciting journey through the adolescence of the dog.
This seminar takes place without dogs!
This seminar will also be held as a webinar.
training with dogs with extensive hunting behaviour
Hunting behaviour in dogs - fascination or curse?
Is it difficult for you to release your dog because you never know if he will stay with you? Is your dog often on the ground with his nose poking around and forgetting the environment around him? Can your dog hardly walk out the front door normally because he knows that he will meet a cat just around the corner? Is your dog unable to respond to your call back as soon as he sees a moving object (bicycle, child, game, cat, etc.)?
Then this workshop is just the right thing for you and your dog.

The safe recall
A dog that doesn't come when you call it is not only nerve-racking - it can also be extremely dangerous. Often the non-return is misinterpreted, undesirable chains of behaviour have crept in or the dog is in a developmental phase that makes listening particularly difficult.
In this workshop we would like to show you the way to a safe recall and work out with you what is the best solution for you and your dog.
Aim of the workshop:Callback always works and is fun!

communication and expressive behaviour
How do dogs communicate? When do we interpret behaviour and when do we actually read body language. Do our four-legged friends even understand what we say and want from them? Do we really understand what they want to communicate to us?
This seminar deals with the "language" of dogs. We analyze specific body postures such as fear, aggression, play requests, etc. We will also watch and analyse films.
This seminar should be attended by everyone who has a dog.
It is a pure theory seminar and takes place without dogs.
fear / insecurity
Fear and / or insecurities in dogs can be found more and more often today. Often the humans react wrongly to these behaviours of their dog because the causes are not understood.
This theory course explains the background to fear and insecurities and brings more understanding about the right behaviour of humans towards the fur nose.
Among other things the following background knowledge is imparted:
Where does fear come from and why does it arise?
How do we react to the fear behaviour of the dog correctly
Different training approaches are discussed
This seminar takes place without dogs
Dealing with hunting dogs and hounds
For a whole weekend we will take a closer look at hunting behaviour and the training of ambitious hunting dogs. In short theory units we discuss important background knowledge about hunting behaviour and hunting dog breeds.
With the dogs present we work practically on different topics to understand and deal with hunting behaviour. Together we look for ways and solutions for a relaxed cooperation. For the training we use the toolbox of positive reinforcement, support desired behaviour and encourage the dogs individually. We deal with the mental and physical workload of hunting enthusiastic dogs, taking into account the preferences and talents of our hunting dogs.
The seminar is aimed at interested dog trainers and dog owners of hunting motivated dogs. In this seminar, trainers receive a wealth of ideas and suggestions for working with their hunting dog customers. Hunting dog owners will gain a better understanding of their dog's hunting ambitions. They have ideas and exercise instructions for their further training and the prospect of beautiful, relaxed moments with their hunting dogs.
Without exception, all participating dogs are harnessed to a well-fitting chest harness. They can deal calmly with the presence of other dogs and people and a seminar situation. Anxious dogs, dogs with a greater feel-good distance and/or a high level of excitement should only be registered after prior consultation with the seminar organisation.

WEBINAR - hunting dogs - curse or fascination
In this webinar we will impart profound knowledge about hunting behaviour, correct behaviour towards hunting dogs and solution strategies.Seminar Details
The dog's sense of smell - theory
The sense of smell is extremely fascinating and exciting. But the dog's nose is also extremely complex and a better understanding of it helps us on the one hand in our everyday life with the dogs and on the other hand in the different activities of nose work.Seminar Details
